PS, Rich, it would be great if I could attend and take advantage of your breakout sessions. I think we all need to keep up and there are many new things to consider as we move on to the next generation of blogging. I have been looking into the financial aspects of blogging and it sounds very interesting as well.

Sounds like a power meeting and a lot of fun.  I echo what Jeff Belonger said... it seems like all of these pow-wows are out west and not on the east coast at all.... Keep us posted on how it went !

Hi Rich, Me Kim in Waco Tx. This sounds good. But I have never heard of it. What is the biggest benefit to going? I think I will come, but I am not sure what it is about.
